Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:1 - Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies found out that I had finished rebuilding the wall and that no gaps remained—though we had not yet set up the doors in the gates.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:2 - So Sanballat and Geshem sent a message asking me to meet them at one of the villages[fn] in the plain of Ono. But I realized they were plotting to harm me,

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:3 - so I replied by sending this message to them: “I am engaged in a great work, so I can’t come. Why should I stop working to come and meet with you?”

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:4 - Four times they sent the same message, and each time I gave the same reply.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:5 - The fifth time, Sanballat’s servant came with an open letter in his hand,

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:6 - and this is what it said: “There is a rumor among the surrounding nations, and Geshem[fn] tells me it is true, that you and the Jews are planning to rebel and that is why you are building the wall. According to his reports, you plan to be their king.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:7 - He also reports that you have appointed prophets in Jerusalem to proclaim about you, ‘Look! There is a king in Judah!’ “You can be very sure that this report will get back to the king, so I suggest that you come and talk it over with me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:8 - I replied, “There is no truth in any part of your story. You are making up the whole thing.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:9 - They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:10 - Later I went to visit Shemaiah son of Delaiah and grandson of Mehetabel, who was confined to his home. He said, “Let us meet together inside the Temple of God and bolt the doors shut. Your enemies are coming to kill you tonight.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:11 - But I replied, “Should someone in my position run from danger? Should someone in my position enter the Temple to save his life? No, I won’t do it!”

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:12 - I realized that God had not spoken to him, but that he had uttered this prophecy against me because Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:13 - They were hoping to intimidate me and make me sin. Then they would be able to accuse and discredit me.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:14 - Remember, O my God, all the evil things that Tobiah and Sanballat have done. And remember Noadiah the prophet and all the prophets like her who have tried to intimidate me.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:15 - So on October 2[fn] the wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:16 - When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:17 - During those fifty-two days, many letters went back and forth between Tobiah and the nobles of Judah.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:18 - For many in Judah had sworn allegiance to him because his father-in-law was Shecaniah son of Arah, and his son Jehohanan was married to the daughter of Meshullam son of Berekiah.

Unchecked Copy BoxNeh 6:19 - They kept telling me about Tobiah’s good deeds, and then they told him everything I said. And Tobiah kept sending threatening letters to intimidate me.
